Leonard Nimoy

Powered by imdb

Raised in a Boston tenement, acting in community theaters since age eight, Leonard Nimoy did not make his Hollywood debut until he was 20, a bit part in Queen for a Day and another as a ballplayer in the perennial Rhubarb. After two years in the United States Army, he was still getting small, often uncredited parts - an Army telex operator in Them!, for example - but his part as Narab, a Martian finally friendly to Earth, in the closing scene in the corny Republic serial Zombies of the Stratosphere, somewhat foreshadowed the role which would make him a household name--Mr. Spock, the half-human/half-Vulcan science officer on Star Trek one of television's all-time most successful series. His performance won him three Emmy nominations and launched his career as a writer and director, notably of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the story of a humpback whale rescue that proved the most successful of the Star Trek movies. Stage credits have included "Fiddler on the Roof", "Oliver", "Camelot" and "Equus". He has hosted the well-known television series In Search of... and Ancient Mysteries, authored several volumes of poetry and guest-starred on two episodes of The Simpsons. He recently played Mustafa Mond in NBC's telling of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.  See full bio on IMDb »
